Greg’s first big break in TV news came in May of 2004, when the NBC affiliate in Detroit offered him a three-month on-air reporting job. Greg was selected from a pool of 300 candidates and won the job through a two-week audition process that played out on live TV!
Greg and his wife Kristen are the proud parents of four young kids. So accordingly, he enjoys telling some “groan-worthy” Dad Jokes.
